The Leap Motion VR Developer Mount allows developers to easily and consistently attach and remove the Leap Motion Controller from a VR headset such as the Oculus DK1 / DK2. For use with the Leap Motion beta SDK for top down tracking and image API. Further information and resources available at https://developer.leapmotion.com/vr.
We recommend to 3D print in high resolution .001" layer or better. Adhesive (not supplied!) required to mount. 3D CAD file for personal non-commercial use only, as is.

NOTE: If you are looking to mount your Leap Motion Controller on an Oculus Rift CV1, the HTC Vive, or any other HMD with a curved front surface you should use our new Universal VR Dev mount, available here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1589212


We recommend to 3d print in high resolution .001" or better. Double sided adhesive tape (not supplied!) required to mount. 3M VHB tape recommended for strong attachment. 3D CAD file for personal non-commercial use only, as is.

Not working with MatterControl - anyone else having the same problem??

Will you be releasing a new model of the CV1 / Vive compatible mount? Thanks!

Shame about the lip on the back/bottom. That makes it a pain to print :(

Any chance of this in a OpenSCAD format?

Sorry Ptribe, we do not have it in OpenSCAD format.

I am using MakerBot (Makerware) 0.001" Resolution is about ~0.03mm Layer Height?

Hi Zduchene,

Yes .001" resolution is about .03mm thick layer height. The better the resolution, the better the tolerance will be for the friction fit desired in the holder.

When printing the holder, Makerware doesn't print any scaffolding to support the recessed back. I'm running the latest version. Any suggestions? Is there a flat backed version of the holder?

We recommend printing in ABS like material using Objet/Polyjet process in .001" or better resolution.

Which 3D printing process and material are you guys using? SLA? PolyJet?
